nutconfigure is a very useful tool and it works as well as the GUI 
version. It is updated and maintained at the same pace as nutconf.exe. 
It appears that it has replaced the former shell script based configure 
mechanism and configure.exe.

I am using nutconfigure a lot to automate Nut/OS builds for our two 
Ethernut compatible hardware platforms. I call nutconfigure from the 
following Makefile to automate full Nut/OS builds for a given .conf file:

.PHONY: all
all: xnut-100 xnut-105

	-$(RM) -R $@-gcc app-$@-gcc
	nutconfigure -i../../$@-gcc/include -b ./$@-gcc -c ./nut/conf/$@.conf 
-mavr-gcc create-buildtree
	nutconfigure -i../../$@-gcc/include -b ./$@-gcc -a app-$@-gcc -c 
./nut/conf/$@.conf -mavr-gcc -pavr-jtagicemkii create-apptree
	$(MAKE) -C $@-gcc install
